Details on the attached file.

Lesson Learned:

  1. Port administrations need to have an increased safety distance when the weather conditions are not favorable.
  2. During adverse weather conditions is recommended to have the engine on standby mode, since once the vessel start develop momentum it close to impossible to stop without engine.
  3. The anchor performance is heavily defendant on the amount of chain deployed, in order to have the anchor on the correct position to bite the floor.
  4. During heavy weather conditions the position monitoring need to be more often than in normal situations, there in the market many GPS for bridges with anchor monitoring alarm, that give officers on watch a ring when the threshold is passed.

This Incident was taken from Marine Accident Investigation Branch from UK.
